American Idol's Jessica Sanchez Glad Phillip Phillips Won

Jessica Sanchez makes an appearance on Extra at The Grove on Thursday (May 24) in Los Angeles.

The 16-year-old American Idol runner-up chatted with host Mario Lopez about her journey on the show.

After coming in second place on the show’s eleventh season, Jessica sat down with Rolling Stone and told the mag she was not surprised her opponent Phillip Phillips won the competition.

“Not at all – he has such a big fanbase. We both do. We both thank our fans so much. But he’s a real “artist” artist. He always sounds like him. He sang so many different songs and always sounded like himself. I’m so proud of him, and I’m glad it was him,” Jessica said.

of course she is…what else is she going to say?

# 2

Maybe next time America will vote for a Filipino she does have some talent.

# 3

She’s such a sweet and humble girl. IMO she deserved to win. I am looking forward to her music!

# 4

yes, phillips has a big fanbase, but that’s because he’s hot, and not cause he sing pretty well. Jéssica should have won, because she’s awesome and the best singer, and she’s a sweety! But you know, 2º place in AI is much better than 1º. So congrats jessica! YOU WOOON!

# 5

I don’t watch the show but that girl is very unfortunate looking.

# 6

@Cha Jung: Kinda of racist considering you’re using tech that was created by a white people. She will get a contract by being humble and not being spiteful. Clearly AI have a race problem but don’t drag yourself down to their level. Also what about if a black or white person didn’t a philippines show, is it considered as racism?

# 7

This girl is a star, her whole ora, image, and style is going to take her places. Not to mention that voice!

# 8

very little people seem to care, as evidenced by the reaction here. This seasons idol sucked big time. This girl will be forgotten fast, the winner less fast.

# 9

she should get a nose job LOL

Jessica is so AWESOME, she is a S T A R

To be completely honest I wasn’t impressed with either one. Yes, they can sing but I don’t think they are musicians that will make a mark or impression in music history.

I’m very proud of what Jessica accomplished on American Idol. She really made the fans and Filipinos everywhere proud. Even though she placed 2nd behind Phillip Phillips, she’s already on her way to have a fantastic career. For instance, its sorta like Season 7, when David Archuleta finished 2nd and look how much he accomplished (from self-titled debut album, Christmas From The Heart, The Other Side of Down, OPM album “Forevermore”, a starring role in a Philippine mini series “Nandito Ako”, and his upcoming fifth studio album “BEGIN” coming out August 7, 2012). :)

So what I’m trying to explain is that no matter if you’re 2nd or anything not like 1st place, you can still achieve a lot of success outside of American Idol. So I’m confident that she can be able to accomplish a lot of great things as she starts her musicial career.

But anyway, congrats to both Jessica and Phillip for everything they done in American Idol. :)

LOVE THIS GIRL!! Jessica is going to be pretty big, just wait and see!

Beautiful and talented girl who should have won! She’s going to be a star no matter what.

to me she has a crush on phillip

Joshua Ledet deserved to win!!!!

Oh my gosh, she’s so skinny.

no to nose job jess.pls don’t!stay natural.be satisfied of what God gave U…

@jeezzer:
Jessica, you are beautiful inside & out. Some people are just plain mean & miserable. Stay sweet, don’t change anything about you.Your talent & hard work will pay off! What makes you beyond amazing is the way you are so humbled by your intense journey on AI!

of course a pinoy will never win in the land of …. r a c i s t ! believe me!

I’m surprises she isn’t sad. NOT.

Jessica has such a great voice at a young age ..she will be even be better as the years go by. Sometimes its even better to land 2nd place, they become more successful as proven in Idol’s history. Hope she does make it big bec she’s that good. We all know she is a better singer. But Idol is all about popularity & they vote on this premise & not merely on pure talent. Had Jessica been white, it could have been a whole different story

Agree Jessica should have won the AI but time will prove it so we’ll support her and can’t wait for her music. When downloading the message is Not Available?

Look at that thigh gap though!
